I'm probably about to jinx this, but things are a little teeny bit better tonight.
The numbness, and the pain are not so intense tonight. (yaaaaaay!) It's still there, and the itching is seriously...itchy! But, it feels so much better tonight. (my elbows...both of them! on the other hand, or elbow...are sore. I couldnt take it any longer and knitted off and on for about an hour tonight and that set off the elbow pain)
Some of the numbness actually let up today. I could feel it let go a bit, and then it would come flying back full force. It's been doing that off and on all evening, but at least it's trying to behave somewhat now. I hope this means things will be going back to normal soon in my hand and that the numbness will leave me alone for a long while.
Too bad the numbness further down on my body (around the upper chest, on the left side down to just above my hip, then skips down to my feet) hasnt improved. That's actually MORE numb. So are my feet. Plus I've had a couple of instances tonight where it felt like someone was tasering me in the side for a second. That hasnt happened for awhile. (well, it was about 20yrs ago that I was actually tasered for real. Long boring story that involves Boys Town students I used to work with...but maybe 3yrs since the MS Trolls in my head tried zapping me like that)
I can deal easier with numb toes and feet, as long as they arent burning like crazy. Not as easy to do when it's my hands, since I've got to constantly be doing something with my hands. It's really difficult for me to sit still without having something to do.
I'm about to go pop a Baclofen and go to sleep. I think that it might actually be possible to sleep eventually tonight. As long as the hand behaves and doesnt start hurting. I better shut up now so it wont start doing that just to spite me.
